It takes a special kind of artist to capture the piercing truths, raw intensity, and immense beauty of our shared human experiences and to express them in language that speaks to the heart of the audience. It takes an equally courageous human and soul adventurer to plumb the depths of the most ravishing human emotions and brave explore hidden corners of one own consciousness to birth such profoundly moving art. Born on the tiny island of Guernsey to a Portuguese family, British singer-songwriter NESSI Gomes has forged path less traveled into her artistry by relentlessly pursuing her own journey of self-discovery and channeling her most painful, revelatory and liberating experiences into her powerful musical creations. NESSI seamlessly fuse the traditional Fado folk music style of her ethnic roots, her more contemporary influences, and the weaving of her pure, sultry, emotive voice, along with most intimate revelations, and sprinkle of fairy dust, into one cohesive sound that is truly her own. All of this is clearly evidence in her critically acclaim release, Diamonds & Demons, timeless collection of songs that are both deeply haunting and healing. I had the pleasure of diving deep with NESSI in heart to heart chat that affirmed the origins of her rich artistry, and her consistent willingness to unabashedly open up and reveal all. I leave the conversation feeling moved by her vulnerability, inspired by her journey to devote myself deeper to my own highest visions, and with renewed hope in the wave of musical messengers that are showing up at this time, to unite us as we move through our moments of darkness into light. In this Conscious Artist Feature, we get an up-close glimpse into the inner world NESSI has so fearlessly navigated and bar in her music, and trials and tribulations that precede her currently mostly blissful life. NESSI shares about her unexpected three-year long stay at PachaMama community in Costa Rica at a crucial point in her path, where she had her first experiences sitting in a plant medicine ceremony and where the direction she was to take in both life and music were reveal. NESSI generously grants us a peek into the creative dance of an artist committed to exploring ever-New territory, and avoiding confines of classification or any potential complacency in her expression. She also offers her perspective on the healing powers of the Voice, and sheds light on her work supporting others in accessing and furthering their own vocal liberation in her Voice Odyssey workshops. Last but not least, NESSI take the opportunity to honour and acknowledge her beloved life partner and collaborator in all things, Lino, who is soon to be father of their first born child. This Face Current Conscious Artist Feature is published in Issue 22 / Winter 2019. Order PRINT here, or continue reading this article below.

Background

The Loch Ness Monster is a mythical animal that allegedly lives in Loch Ness, large freshwater lake near Inverness, Scotland. Although accounts of aquatic beast living in lake date back 1 500 years, all efforts to find any credible evidence of animals have fail. That hasnt dampened public enthusiasm, however, for any news about Nessie. Loch Ness, located in the Scottish Highlands, has the largest volume of fresh water in Great Britain; body of water reaches a depth of nearly 800 feet and a length of about 23 miles. Scholars of Loch Ness Monster find a dozen references to Nessie in Scottish History, dating back to around 500 AD, when local Picts carved strange aquatic creature into standing stones near Loch Ness.


The History of the Loch Ness Monster

Great Glen in the Scottish Highlands is a rift valley 60 miles long and contains three famous lochs; Lochy, Oich and Ness. The most famous of these is Loch Ness because of Monster say to lurk in its deep waters. It is deeper than the North Sea and is very long and very, very narrow and has never been known to freeze. There have been numerous sightings of Monster, affectionately known as Nessie. The first recorded account is of an eyeball to eyeball confrontation with an Irish saint,. Columba in 6 century. Columba, so story go, orders one of his monks to swim across Loch and fetch a boat. Halfway across, a monster appeared and rushed at the swimmer, roaring in the most frightening way! Columba cries out to the Monster, Go no further, nor touch man! Go back!. The monster is said to have flee! Since then, Nessie has been seen many times but has never harmed anyone. Sightings have been sporadic over centuries, but in the 20th century Nessie has been more active, which has had a profound affect on local business! 1933 was the year when the first photograph was taken of a Monster, or what is said to be a Monster. It shows something with a long neck arch over a thick body. This photograph, taken by a London surgeon, caused a sensation when first published in the Daily Mail. Circus owner Bertram Mills, who was travelling via Loch on his way to Inverness, offered a £20 000 reward to anyone who could capture Monster for his circus, but so far no one has claimed the reward. It could be said that Mills was quite an entrepreneur since the reward brought many flocking to Loch and both sightings and ticket sales to the nearby circus were on the rise! The fact that circus animals were fed and watered on the banks of Loch and that the head and neck of Monster closely resembled elephant trunk was, perhaps unsurprisingly, not make common knowledge! In 1951, Lachlan Stuart, forestry worker who lived beside Loch, also managed to photograph the Monster, if that is indeed what it was. He saw three humps of water appear in line and ran back to his house to get his camera. After taking one photograph, his camera shutter jam, but his photograph got wide publicity as further proof of the existence of Nessie. Interest in Nessie has become intense and over the years several scientific investigations have taken place. In 1961, the Loch Ness Phenomena Investigation Bureau was formed and even two submarines were brought into search with sonar experts on board! When submarine Pisces was diving off Castle Urquhart, where water is 950 feet deep, vast underwater cavern was find. Was this the Nessies ' home?

History

T he public fascination with storming Area 51 has now extended to some other mysteries around the world. But the latest subject of potential raid carry lore much older than the military base itself: Loch Ness monster. The Facebook event encouraging raid on Loch Ness, lake in the Highland, Scotland, probably result in the official discovery of the mythical monster dubbed Nessie, but it looks like 21 000 people attending the event are still willing to try. It TIME is now for the US to find dat big boi, event description say. Its certainly not Nessies first rodeo. Believers have been wondering whether or not this mythical Scottish monster exists in Loch Ness for centuries. TIME even included an infamous 1934 photo of what appeared to be a monster in its 100 Photos project, which collects the world's most iconic and important pictures. The Loch Ness image is something of a lodestone for conspiracy theorists and fable seekers, according to TIMEs entry on photo. So it is no surprise that this resurgent interest in Loch Ness has arrived in the wake of the internet Area 51 obsession. Before you want to check out the scene for yourself and try to crack the case once and for all, get to know the history behind this legend, from the Roman discovery to the false photograph in London newspaper. Heres everything to know about the history behind the move to Storm Loch Ness.


Loch Ness Monster Sightings

The first recorded sighting of our famous Loch Ness Monster was in 565 AD! Nessie was said to have appeared from deep Loch Ness waters. Here she snatched up and ate the servant, before being forced back into the waters by his master, Columba. Over the years, more rumours spread far and wide of other such strange events at Loch Ness. Many believe in water Kelpies and Each-Uisge, water spirit in Scottish folklore. These ancient Scottish myths about such water creatures contribute to the notion of creature living in the depths of Loch Ness.

Technical Development Generations

Key elements of the NeSSI Generation II Specification are as follow. Adoption of digital communication bus that is specifically tailored for Process Analytics and intended to replace 4-20 mA systems. This bus can handle up to 30 devices. For electrical equipment in hazardous areas, classify the interior of enclosure handling hazardous fluids as Division 1 / Zone 1 rather than Division / Zone 2. Adopting use of safe low energy, globally accepted method of electrical protection called intrinsic safety for NeSSI-bus. Adopting use of miniature smart / automated electronic devices including sensors, on / off and proportional actuators and enclosure heater controls. Move away from use of local indicating devices such as gauges and rotameters in order to reduce labor-intensive manual checking. Move away from a centralized control model to a local / field control model which is represented by a small computing device called Sensor Actuator Manager. Adopting the concept of portable, commercially available software smart applets for the purpose of automating specific sample system functions. These applets would be resident in SAM. Employing Ethernet network between SAM, DCS and Operator & Maintenance User station. Introduction of Graphical User Interface for better visualization of physically compact sampling systems. The first prototype of the multi node / miniature Generation II system was demonstrated by Siemens Process Analytics in 2006. Siemens has adapted existing bus system called I 2 C to operate in an intrinsically safe mode. This work was undertaken once it was determined that existing intrinsically safe capable digital communication systems such as Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus could not meet the requirements of reduced physical size as well as lower cost and power draw defined by NeSSI-bus. Whether or not this bus will go into wide commercial production is unknown at this time. Nonprofit organization, CAN in Automation released in 2007 Draft Standard Proposal, that specifies the physical layer of intrinsically safe bus. Specifications have been developed by members of the CiA organization, among them ABB, Pepperl + Fuchs, Texas Instruments, and Siemens. By using lower voltage for its power supply, this bus CAN provide more current to power multiple devices in a hazardous environment. This group has standardized upon 5-pin M8 pico connector for providing both power and signal to devices. Commercial implementation of Process analytical system using this bus has yet to be demonstrate. Interim development called Generation 1. 5 uses both conventional 4-20 mA analogue sensors and discrete signals to actuate valves. The Programmable Logic Controller is used as Sensor Actuator Manager.

Applications

NeSSI is used for processing analytical measurements in the petrochemical, chemical and oil refining industries. These measurements may be for quality control of raw material or final product, environmental compliance, safety, energy reduction or process control purpose. Vapour applications may include hydrocarbon feed stocks and intermediates, natural gas streams, liquefy petroleum gas streams, hydrogen and air gas streams. Liquid Systems suitable for use with Generation I mechanical portion of NeSSI are hydrocarbons such as diesel fuel as well as aqueous streams. Highly viscous fluids and solids are not suitable for use with NeSSI. Very dirty, high particulate streams need to be filter. Some liquid service applications may be limited by pressure drops associated with components hooked up in serial configuration. NeSSI Systems have found applications in areas other than process analytical environments including micro reactor, mini plants and laboratory environments where small size, unskilled assembly and flexible configuration is important.

Criticism, Impact and Summary

Criticisms of NeSSI mechanical systems include higher initial cost, inability to troubleshoot at component level, and lack of performance data associated with use of elastomeric seals in long term installations. From a design perspective, it may be difficult to design modular, mechanical system which meet the needs of diverse process applications found in industry. Development of the NeSSI-bus has been iterative exercise and it will need close cooperation of both component and analyzer manufacturers to make their equipment NeSSI-bus compliant. At this time, there are missing elements such as a low cost, low power flow sensor which is capable of providing continuous reading of sample system flow as well as a proportional, miniature control valve. Adoption of a universally accepted method of protection for sample systems will globalize and harmonize system design and help overcome geographical restrictions currently mandated by various electrical certification / approval bodies such as Factory Mutual and Underwriters Laboratories, ATEX, GOST and Canadian Standards Association. Analyzer technical staff will have the capability of accessing the status of all key indicators of analytical sample system performance both locally and remotely. Predictive rather than preventive maintenance can be performed and remote diagnostics and graphical user interfaces are the norm. Analyzer rounds will be eliminate. Analyzer systems will become more reliable and trustworthy. An Analyzer technician will have the power to configure sampling / analytical system, as he / she desires, using smart applets. The adjustable wrench and screwdriver will be replaced with software. Molecular management meaning tighter process control by more analysis of chemical processes-will become feasible with better, faster, less costly and more abundant analysis. This will help reduce manufacturing energy costs and minimize environmental emissions in processing industries. Since its debut in 2000, NeSSI mechanical portion has seen gradual but steady acceptance in the industry. Currently, there are three major commercial suppliers of NeSSI compliant mechanical systems along with dozens of components available for mounting on these systems. There is also a growing list of companies implementing NeSSI systems in their manufacturing and pilot-plant facilities. Recently, two of the largest suppliers of process analyzers have committed to supporting NeSSI hardware and development of intrinsically safe NeSSI-bus communication into their products. NeSSI is gaining status as a de facto standard for many process sampling system applications. NeSSI acceptance today, has spread beyond its initial chemical and petrochemical industry roots to find applications in automotive, food, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as applications as analytical development systems in research laboratories. Generation II electrical systems are now close to commercialization with first industrial systems scheduled for operation in 2008.
